"As regards the constitution of the House of Justice, Bahá’u’lláh addresses the men. ' "But when its members are to be elected, the right which belongs to women, so far as their voting and their voice is concerned, is indisputable. Verily ye deserve to adorn your heads with the crown of everlasting glory, because in sciences and arts, in virtues and perfections ye shall become equal to man, and as regards tenderness of heart and the abundance of mercy and sympathy ye are superior'." "To the general premise that women and men have equality in the Faith, this, as often explained by ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, is a fundamental principle deriving from Bahá’u’lláh and therefore His mention of the 'Men of Justice' in the Kitáb-i-Aqdas should be considered in light of that principle." "In this day man must investigate reality impartially and without prejudice in order to reach the true knowledge and conclusions.When the women attain to the ultimate degree of progress, then according to the exigency of the time and place and their great capacity, they shall obtain extraordinary privileges. His Holiness Bahá’u’lláh has greatly strengthened the cause of women, and the rights and privileges of women is one of the greatest principles of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá. Ere long the days shall come when the men addressing the women, shall say: 'Blessed are ye! What, then, constitutes the inequality between man and woman? In powers and function each is the complement of the other.In this enlightened world of the West woman has advanced an immeasurable degree beyond the women of the Orient.And let it be known once more that until woman and man recognize and realize equality, social and political progress here or anywhere will not be possible.
How many a handmaid, ardent and devoted, hath, within the sheltering shade of Bahá, proved superior to the men, and surpassed the famous of the earth."In a Tablet to an early woman believer ‘Abdu’l-Bahá stated: 'O maidservant of God!Know thou that in the sight of God, the conduct of women is the same as that of men… there is no difference between women and men…' He added, however: 'As to the House of Justice: according to the explicit text of the Law of God, its membership is exclusively reserved to men.From the fact that there is no equality of functions between the sexes one should not, however, infer that either sex is inherently superior or inferior to the other, or that they are unequal in their rights." "In this Revelation of Bahá’u’lláh, the women go neck and neck with the men. They will attain in all such a degree as will be considered the very highest station of the world of humanity and will take part in all affairs. Do ye not look upon the present condition; in the not far distant future the world of women will become all-refulgent and all-glorious. At the time of elections the right to vote is the inalienable right of women, and the entrance of women into all human departments is an irrefutable and incontrovertible question. "But there are certain matters, the participation in which is not worthy of women.For example, at the time when the community is taking up vigorous defensive measures against the attack of foes, the women are exempt from military engagements.
